IAA Mobility 2021: ElringKlinger underscores open-minded approach to technology

Dettingen/Erms, Munich (Germany), September 1, 2021 +++ ElringKlinger's presence at the IAA Mobility 2021 will focus on solutions for all drive types. For example, the company will be showcasing product highlights from the fields of battery and fuel cell technology, some of which will be realistically presented in a demonstrator vehicle. But innovative solutions for the modern combustion engine will also be presented.

At the IAA Mobility, which will be held in Munich from September 7 to 12, 2021, internationally positioned automotive supplier ElringKlinger will be underscoring its open-minded approach to technology with a view to playing a significant role in shaping change within the automotive industry. "The changes taking place in our industry are gaining momentum and progressing at a considerable pace. ElringKlinger is in a prime position with regard to the electromobility megatrend, both in battery and fuel cell technology. We will be taking advantage of the largest global mobility platform to present our extensive portfolio, including internal combustion engines, to trade visitors from around the world," says Dr. Stefan Wolf, CEO of ElringKlinger AG. The company's exhibition stand (B21) is located in Hall B3.

Various products for zero-emission mobility will be installed in a demonstrator vehicle, showcasing the Group's first-class starting position offering solutions for current and future vehicle generations. Highlights at the booth include various fuel cell stack platforms from the EKPO Fuel Cell Technologies joint venture established with Plastic Omnium. "We underline our claim to be a full-service supplier for fuel cell stacks and components used in passenger cars, but also light commercial vehicles, trucks, and buses," explains Dr. Wolf.

Efficient energy storage is considered a key technology for electric vehicles. ElringKlinger offers components, modules as well as complete battery storage systems and will also be showcasing these at the IAA Mobility. ElringKlinger will also be showcasing its expertise in electric drive units (EDU) in Munich. Two EDUs are installed in the demonstrator vehicle, one each on the front and rear axles. "With production-ready solutions from the areas of battery technology and Drivetrain, we perfectly complement our portfolio for fuel cells and are therefore in the best possible position," said Dr. Wolf.

Lightweight products are used in vehicles regardless of the drive type. Among other things, the demonstrator vehicle features cockpit cross car beams and front-end beams, a hybrid sill and underbody shielding for battery systems.

Product innovations from the classic product portfolio for the modern combustion engine - for example thermal and acoustic shielding systems as well as cylinder-head gaskets and dynamic precision parts - complement the trade show presentation.
